Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 17426
Mouse cursor graphic is corrupt
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
I have installed 6.1 several times from the CD, choosing 'server'
and 'workstation' (or is it single-user, I forget) and other options too.
On every install (even installing Xwindows separately) the graphic for the
mouse cursor is corrupt, always appearing as a square bit-map, with random
pixels shaded. Changing resolution, background, theme, GNOME to tvm,
nothing makes any difference. The mouse works, movement, clicking, etc -
you just have to remember to line up the top-left hand corner of the
corrupt graphic to represent the end of the mouse point.
I tried experimenting with 'xfd -fn cursor' but didn't get any results I
could understand. I also looked for font files .pcf .snf and .bdf in
various fonts.dir directories. Again, I didn't really understand the
Is this a known error? I have searched had for documentation, but found
single PIII 500, 256MB, Intel Server M/B, Adaptec AIC-7896, SCSI HDD, on-
board Cirrus Logic GD5480 graphics.
Try adding a:
to the 'Device' section of your /etc/X11/XF86Config file.
Does that help?
(Sorry I took so long to try your idea!)
But no, neither change to the XF86Config file made any difference. Any other
configuration changes you can suggest?
Try the XFree86 4.0.1 server in Red Hat Linux 7?
